Japanese Americans complied when evicted from their homes in World War II -- but many refused to submit to imprisonment in American concentration camps without a fight. The new graphic novel "We Hereby Refuse: Japanese American Resistance to Wartime Incarceration" presents an original vision of America's past with disturbing links to the American present and shares stories of incarceration camps as you've never heard before. Hear about the creation of this groundbreaking book by authors Frank Abe and Tamiko Nimura with illustrations by Ross Ishikawa and Matt Sasaki. Presented by Densho: The Japanese American Legacy Project, Elliott Bay Book Company, Seattle Public Library Foundation, and Wing Luke Museum.
